Summer Block Party

Join us for the biggest celebration of art and community in New Hampshire!

Our Block Party is returning on Sunday, July 14, from 3 to 7 pm!

This free summer event celebrates the Currier’s commitment to the local community and beyond, with live performances, family-friendly activities, and a range of programs for visitors of all ages.

“We’re looking forward to once again welcoming our community to the Currier’s annual Summer Block Party!” said Karen Graham, interim executive director & COO. “This festive event is a celebration of art, creativity, and togetherness. Join us for an evening of art-making activities, fun performances, and inspiring exhibitions – including the opening of our exciting new show with Daniel Otero Torres. It’s the perfect occasion to experience the inclusive spirit of the museum and connect with friends and neighbors.”

Attendees will enjoy a variety of live music, performed outdoors near the museum’s entrance. Laura Boyce, from Rock 101’s Greg & the Morning Buzz radio show, will be on-hand to emcee the event.

This year’s art activities include projects inspired by the museum’s new Daniel Otero Torres exhibition, Sonidos del Crepúsculo (Twilight Sounds), as well as a chance to create watercolor seascapes inspired by the Stories of the Sea show. Visitors can also try their hands at stamp printmaking to create abstract patterns similar to those in Elisabeth Kley’s installation in the Welcome Gallery. Great food and drink – including beer and wine – will be available for purchase. Try something delicious from local food trucks including Deadproof Pizza, Consuelo’s, Arnie’s Place Ice Cream, and the Gyro Spot!

The Block Party is completely free, and the public is encouraged to attend! The event will take place rain or shine. The Currier’s Block Party is generously presented by M&T Bank, with thanks for additional support from Shaheen & Gordon and St. Mary’s Bank.
